Awakening

It wasn't until these recent Jack Delano photos that I realized he used a 35mm machine at times. I have always been so blown away by his spectacular 4x5s I guess I just didn't notice this fact. Makes me wonder what camera he used? Somehow I get the feeling it was a Contex with Carl Zeiss lenses.

Ponemah

Delano got the company's name wrong: it should be Ponemah. Most monumental mills in Connecticut.

Ignored

Not a word about Miss Veronica! Poor baby.

Also still there

Sadly, those swell cars are long gone.
